Hello. I am wondering if there are any official refereeing certification courses out there now, since th AC's of several states have been approving MMA competition. Any contact info would be appreciated. Thank you.Beezulbubba@yahoo.com
Kipp Kollar or Joe Cuff should be able to answer this, I believe.
The ABC (Association of Boxing Commissioners) in St. Louis is developing a training program to certify Judges and Referees. MMA had their day at the ABC Conference in July 2003. This is necessary with more states approving MMA under the Unified Rules of Conduct.
